What does the theology master programme look like?

The Master of Theology programme consists of two semesters. In your first semester, you will start with two interdisciplinary courses, as well as four courses dedicated to the specialised track you have chosen. One of your first-semester courses will be provided by our partner institute, the University of Groningen. Your second semester is fully dedicated to your specialisation, including  methodology, specialisation courses, literature study and a master thesis.

A three-way conversation

The International Master provides a great entry point into Western theology and culture for students from Asia, Africa and Latin America. We are well equipped to help you build a bridge between your own context and the European Academy. For the same reason, a number of students from the West have chosen this particular one year programme because it provides an exposure to other expressions of World Christianity and intercultural theology. We love to help you deepen the three-way conversation between your own context and its challenges, Western theology, and the Christian Scriptures and tradition.
